Bio
Christopher is one of the most accomplished college students of the past decade, winning multiple international accolades: Mitchell Scholar, Goldwater Scholar, Rhodes Scholar Finalist, and Marshall Scholar Finalist. He has worked with over 60 students over the past 5 years as an advisor. While Christopher is honored to have received his many titles and accolades, the college experience was so much more and this is why he wants to help all students achieve their potential at their dream school! As a triple major who went to undergrad at a smaller school on a scholarship, then lived in Ireland while attending Trinity College, and now pursues a PhD at Duke University, Christopher has experience at schools ranging from the small to the big, the close-knit to the prestigious. As an international fellow, Christopher has vast experience in interview preparation and essay writing; as an advisor and application reader to these competitive fellowships, he has a keen eye on how to find the narrative in an applicants story!
